Your conclusion is of course to be considered as all the others.

Still, we already discussed that (b) is not true: vim users will be
happier with vim-tiny than with vim even without

Since my feeling is that we have more vim users than nvi ones,
installing the former instead of the latter per default is a net win.

Assuming my feeling is correct of course ...
